Civilization 5 crashes often during play
Civilization 5 crashes repeatedly on my system. I can play for 10 minutes but then the system will crash.
I am playing Civilization 5 gods and kings (from the Gold Edition / Steam install).
Here is my system.
Here is my dxdialog and other info:
And then my civ 5 configuration
I also found a lot of people are having the same problem. I don’t really see a good solution in there.
I found this, there doesn’t seem to be a solution (overheating and civ 5):

I am running win8 pc I had this problem before here is how I fixed it:
- Update graphics driver
- Run as administrator
- Options->Video Options->GPU Texture Decode->OFf->Restart game
If it didn’t work:
4. Options->Video Options->Vsync->OFf->Restart game
Best way to I’ve found is to
1) Use directx 9
2) turn off full screen.
To solve this problem you can try running the game in DirectX 9 mode. If that doesn’t work there are other solutions that have worked for other people.
